During the Retaining Wall workshop, participants learned the fundamental differences between retaining walls and free standing walls. Discussions centered around the important aspects of proper foundation, drainage and back-fill in order to build a wall that lasts! This was complemented with lots of hands-on practice. The participants enjoyed wonderful weather until a late afternoon thunder storm which didn’t deter them from finishing.
Jamie Masefield was the instructor; he’s a DSWA-GB Certified Advanced Dry Stone Waller and Instructor.
